Although born and raised in the UK, fencer Gaurav Gupta is training to represent India at the 2012 Olympics in London.

In this East Midlands Today report with Jeremy Nicholas viewable below, our Economics student explains that choosing his parents’ home country allowed him to pursue both his sporting career and his studies. 

This is the first time that a current Leicester student has had such sporting success and the whole University is very proud of Gaurav. To help him with his ambitions Gaurav has received a sponsorship from the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Sir Bob Burgess, and support from the University’s Sports and Recreation Team, among others.
